please note: this is the same campus where the BABS harmony college is held!

NOTE: Kenyon Road is newly opened and your satnav may not find it.  If you go to the Rose and Crown Pub on Derby Road (A6200), face the pub from the street and Kenyon Road will be about 50 metres on your left (in between an ancient wall and a modern building).  This will take you to the hotel.

Harmony Brigade Show

What is Harmony Brigade?

The Harmony Brigade is a weekend of singing by experienced barbershop quartet singers from all over the world who have learned a common repertoire of twelve songs on their own.  They come together for a weekend of wall-to-wall singing in as many quartet combinations as possible, often with people they have just met.  There is a not-too-serious quartet competition, and a Saturday night show.  Because of the unusual nature of singing new songs with no prior rehearsal together, the activity is called EXTREME QUARTETTING. It is not for the faint-hearted!  

The Brigade Chorus

The entire group sings its repertoire as a chorus as well.  But it's a chorus with a difference:  the members will have sung together a couple of times for the first time on Saturday afternoon. The songs are directed by a number of different directors from within the group, and the chorus and its directors will not have worked together before. Recipe for a disaster?  Not at all. It's merely extreme. Experienced singers who know their music perfectly will produce an amazing performance for you.  

Brigade Quartets

The show will include an examples of what we do featuring a bit of performance by one or two of our random quartets.  

 

Guest Acts on our Show

This year we are proud to have gold medal participants with us, and some of them will perform with their quartets.
